What happens in Vegas ... sometimes never stops happening. It has been exactly 10 years since 'Ocean's 11' opened (on December 7, 2001), but the movie remains ubiquitous on TV, as do its two smash sequels. Plus, there's no getting away from its all-star cast -- including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, and Matt Damon -- or from director Steven Soderbergh, whose ongoing career successes (as with this year's 'Contagion,' starring Damon) make us skeptical of his threats to retire from filmmaking. Still, as many times as you've watched Soderbergh's remake of the 1960 Rat Pack heist caper, there are still things you may not know, like whether there's really such a device as a "pinch" that can knock out a city's power grid with an electromagnetic pulse, how wretchedly Clooney fared at the tables of an actual casino, what in the film was altered in the aftermath of 9/11, or what the heck Pitt meant by "a Boesky, a Jim Brown, a Miss Daisy, two Jethros and a Leon Spinks, not to mention the biggest Ella Fitzgerald ever." You can learn the answers ahead. Are you in or are you out?
